Fortnite players have long been wanting to see a ranked mode added to the game and it looks like they might get their wish if a new leak ends up coming to fruition.

A rumor floating around the internets suggest that Fortnite might adopt a new ranking system in Season 7 that could serve to bridge the gap between the casual and competitive communities.


The rumor, posted by Twitter user ‘GuzzlingS,’ was first spotted in the replies to a tweet from Team Liquid’s Ryan ‘Chap’ Chaplo.

According to the Tweet, Epic Games is going to introduce casual and ranked playlists, with the latter adhering to the Winter Royale’s score system and rule set


One thing to note in the rumor is that there will be a system in place to take points away from players for leaving games unfinished. 

While this isn’t something that has been seen in any of Fortnite’s in-game tournaments thus far, the concept of chipping away at a player’s rank for disconnects isn’t anything new to online competitive games.

The rumor touched on the possibility of three rank resets throughout Season 7 to help to keep players engaged and willing to grind for rewards at the time of resets.


Rewards would range from in-game cosmetic items to the top 1% of the leaderboard to V-bucks for the top 5%.

Epic GamesWinter is coming with a whole lot of rumored twists for players.

Finally, the rumor suggests that an end-of-season tournament will be coming for players who acquire a certain amount of points at the end of any one of the sessions. 

The tourney would be smaller than those big events Epic Games has planned, but still something to compete for, especially for smaller, amateur players.


Epic Games has been trying to find a way to deliver satisfying competitions for their battle royale game, while also opening the tournaments to as many players as possible. So even if the rumors don’t carry any weight, ideas are sure to be floating around within Epic Games to improve the popular battle royale’s competitive scene.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.


Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.


To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
  • Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs (3)

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
